Barren Seas

Carlos María Domínguez

SHORT STORIES. LITERATURA RANDOM HOUSE, 2012. 192 PAGES.

A ship for every story and a battle for every man.

The tales in Barren Seas are inspired by an early curiosity about ships and the sea, enhanced by the works of Haroldo Conti and Joseph Conrad, on the basis that they are the perfect setting in which to explore human courage and the defeats that inevitably come with it.     

“These stories can be seen as islands within the literary project

that Dominguez has been quietly building, one that is as powerful as it is coherent.”

Hernán Ronsino, REVISTA Ñ

 

“The success of these stories is their themes and their storytelling craft,

which Domínguez has mastered to perfection.”

LA DIARIA

 

“Every story offers a mystery in just a few brushstrokes.

Domínguez’s prose flows remarkably.”

Ángel Berlanda, PÁGINA/12
